Gary's garden drama....

I put a net up in the garden today but took it down as it was too windy. Then a female Sparrowhawk caught a ringed adult male Blackbird but could not fly over the fence as it was too heavy. So it stayed in the garden for over half an hour while it plucked and ate it. In the last photo you can make out the leg and the ring on the ground. The Sparrowhawk finally flew off carrying what was left of the Blackbird plus the two legs - so no recovery!
